As 9mm's go, I have 2. The 226 being one of them and a 1911 is the other. If I was to want to carry a 9mm it would be that Sig. Say what you will about this and that but the fact remains it is one of the best built most reliable on the market. Mine is a tack driver at 50 yards. call me weird but I just like a pistol with a hammer. Being a 1911 freak I'm not real big on the trigger of the Sig either but I just can't deny the way the pistol functions. 5,000 rounds through mine and it shoots as well now as it did new if not better.
